Chanda Kochhar, who is also the bank’s joint managing director, said at the Reuters India Investment Summit in Mumbai that cashed-up corporates will keep shopping abroad to access new markets or lock in raw materials — providing a nice pipeline of potential deals for a bank that had a piece in 88 percent of outbound investments this year.
